to be a correlation between actually increasing rates on the top and increasing economic growth. bill clinton increased taxes and we had a much better economy than we had after george w. bush who cut taxes in 2001 and 2003. >> eliot: i'm going to talk about that event study in a few moments on the show. lastly there is another crisis emerging, which is the debt cereal something going to bump up us or we'll bump up against it in a short month or two. that has to be with this bargaining--they have to deal with it simultaneously i hope. >> boehner will say to the president, look, if you keep everything the way it is right now and extend the bush tax cuts temporarily into january or february then we will agree not to oppose an increase in the debt limit, and then we'll have our negotiations sometime in february or in march. i think the president needs to say no. the american public already went through that with you guys. one of the reasons you got a rubbing in the last election is because of your manipulations your subjecting to the american economy to the possibility of defaulting on the faith

and tell them you're dead here, you're finished. it's almost macabre. >> we have talked about bill clinton as a super surrogate for barack obama. mike, the guy in that ad, he's a super anti-surrogate, an anti-validator of mitt romney. he looks like the voter that barack obama needed to change sides, that former reagan democrat, that white working class guy looking dead into the camera and saying, this guy destroyed us. he took away our livelihood and he made us build the stage that we had to stand on to announce the end of our jobs. it was absolutely the most devastating ad, but what was also remarkable was the romney people had no response. look, they had a six-month lead time on this line of attack because remember something called winning our future pac? they ran a 27 minute ad of this same message. romney, because he survived in florida after that, he seemed to think i can get over this because he didn't respond. >> i talked to -- >> jane mayer, you write in your piece that sarah palin of all people thought that the bain ad had a negative impact on mitt romney's candidacy. she thinks i
that uz buzz is probably fairly apt. she and bill clinton are not exactly low energy, you know, you know, betas sitting around waiting for some thought to occur. they have got plans. they have ambitions. i don't think that --. lori: benghazi is not sticking to her? >> benghazi has not to this point but on that issue benghazi is not going to explode because it ooks as though there is direct relationship between petraeus, his mistress and what happened on september 11th and the decisions that were made. we've seen the unusual step taken by the cia to make two public statements on benghazi. both of which noo are being challenged and challenged rigorously. our own reporting at the fox news channel, those folks, jennifer griffin and catherine herridge, i mean they have just nailed this story. there are a lot of questions for this administration to answer. melissa: lou dobbs, thanks so much. you can see lou every day here at this time. >> every single day. early today. melissa: plenty of time. 7:00 and 10:00 p.m. eastern tonight. catch former cia operative gary bernstein joins lou to discuss
. that is pretty evil. >> i don't think that happened under reagan or under bill clinton. marginal tax rate increase that democrats are looking for will do nothing more than help support the majority of middle class americans that not only support increases on, increase in tax rates on people who are earning over $250,000 but also support not cutting things like social security and medicare and medicaid. and so i think the democrats come in not feeling very, very, rather feeling very strong around this idea that they can create the right compromise and right balance to move this country forward. rick: terry, bill kristol, the prominent conservative, spent last couple days on this network talking about how republicans may want to go along with the president's plan to raise tax rates on those earners above 250,000. take a listen. i'll get your response. this is last night an "special report". >> the first takes rates expire on december 31st. rates are going up for everyone if nothing happens. if you think republicans can win a showdown preserving all the current tax rates against a president
obama's, as did bill clinton, with a republican-controlled house and a republican-controlled senate after a more resounding second-term victory than president obama. both examples -- both of them -- illustrate the rare opportunity that divided government presents. president obama can follow suit or he can take the extremist view that both reagan and clinton rejected, by thumbing his nose at the other side and insisting that if republicans aren't willing to do things his way, he won't do anything at all. now, if the president's serious, he'll follow the leads of president reagan and clinton. if he's really serious, he'll put the campaign rhetoric aside, propose a realistic solution that can pass a republican-controlled house and a divided senate, and work to get it done. and if the president acts in this spirit, i have no doubt he'll have the support of his own party and a willing partner in ours. and the american people will breathe a sigh of relief knowing not only that we've avoided a crisis but that washington can still serve their interests. unless we act i, in a few short weeks
